No panic, No fear, No figuring or forecasting
(Enroute to Nairobi from London – after being awakened at 2:30 a.m. with a distressing phone call from home. I don’t think I slept, but continued to pray, praise and rest in Your presence. I sit between my husband Mark and a woman eating a Hindi meal. In the quietness of this plane, I surrender to You afresh and so desperately need to listen. I so desire to hear Your voice. I wait.)
Song I’m hearing: “It is well with my soul.” I say "YES" it is well with my soul...it's my heart that is filled with sadness and grief for the choices, lifestyle, etc. that have been chosen. I’m thankful You are his Shepherd and I’m just the Momma sheep!
My sheep hear My voice and follow Me. I know them intimately – that is true for you, true for your children. Keep listening, keep praying, keep loving, keep forgiving, keep joyful, keep content, keep settled, and keep at peace.
I AM - that’s enough for you, for this situation, for your time in Kenya, for the ministry I’ve prepared for you to walk in – you are:
My water faucet
My cherished one
I am your child’s:
I am all I am in My names. I am to you and I am to him:
Almighty – Adonai
Rest – He is in My everlasting arms
Rest – He is being broken, molded, shaped
Rest – I am sovereign
Rest – I am aware and know all
Rest – Roll all your burdens into Me and leave them there
Rest – I am on the move
Rest – I am awakening his heart
Rest – My ways, you would never figure out
Rest – be still and know that I AM GOD
Wait on Me
Think on Me
Dwell in Me
Let My words dwell in you
It is well with your soul – because as you press in and lean into Me – you sense no panic, no fear, no calculating, no figuring or forecasting. My heart is calm. My way is not hidden to you My daughter. You continue to run the race I’ll set before you. Run with joy and endurance with your eyes focused on Me. You need to trust Me to rescue him in My way and in My time. I will.
Rest, wait, and trust
Don’t be fearful
Don’t be discouraged
The BATTLE is not yours but Mine
STAND and see the salvation of the Lord!
Lift up your head...see My glory
Expect a miracle
Expect to see with your eyes of faith a vision of him as I see him.
(Listening prayer for me is simply being still in God’s presence, anticipating His voice, recording His words, impressions, or pictures, then responding in love, faith & obedience to what He whispers. It’s absolutely amazing, I always receive exactly what my heart is longing for…. sweet companionship, fresh encouragement and specific guidance.)
